In general, the more you know about your terminal and Android, the more you want to try to get the most out of it, and in many cases, that search makes you stop focusing on what, in the end, is important: that your mobile is not a hindrance but a help.
I’ve been almost a couple of months eliminating two bad habits I had when using my smartphone, and the truth is that these have completely changed my experience with the terminal, Do you want to know what they are?
Although you may think otherwise, Android is an operating system that does not need you to close multitasking to properly manage applications in the background, but, sometimes, the opposite happens: the more you close certain applications, the worse.
@mcwm in general, better to let the system do its job; it was designed to manage running apps so you do not have to

Recently, in fact,and since then I have continued doing my day to day without worrying about closing applications in the background more than once or twice a day. And, as you can see, my experience has changed completely.
And not for anything that has to do with the terminal, but rather with the insane habit of being aware of things that, not only do not have relevance, but can harm the performance of the terminal. The mobile is to use it, and you have to let it work as you know. If you have a low range, obviously you will have to close some applications from time to time. But if, on the contrary, you have a mid-range or a high-end range, say goodbye to this bad habit and you will gain peace of mind.
The second of the changes I have made in my terminal is to eliminate the battery percentage of the notification bar, which, On some occasions, it is the worst thing in the world.
And is that, in our day to day, many of us worry -or worried- about the exact performance of our battery, and this is not bad, but it is not something that is recommended to do every time you turn on your terminal screen.
If you think about it, it gives you absolutely the same thing to know if your terminal has a 23% battery or if it has a 28%. The point is that either you have too little or too much left, and knowing the exact number does nothing but increase your “concern” about the performance of it.
This, in the end, prevents us from enjoying everything that we should from our terminal. The battery is to spend it, and when it is short enough to put the terminal to charge looking before consumption to see that everything is in order, but you should not obsess about the exact percentage of your battery and how much you consume for each hour of active screen.
The more we strive to get more out of our terminal, more nervous we turn to aspects such as multitasking and battery. Forget about all this, the mobile is to use it and to enjoy it, not for us to be slaves of it.
Therefore, our advice is that you take it with philosophy, and that it is not your smartphone that takes you. Enjoy what you can of it and do not obsess about the performance of the terminal, While it gives you good performance on a day-to-day basis, the rest is secondary.
